Washington DC in Springtime
You can read about neighborhoods elsewhere on this website. You can listen to the nightly news and hear what’s happening or not happening on Capitol Hill. There is no shortage of news about what goes on in the Capitol of the United States. What you may not have heard and you may not know…Nobody does Spring like Washington DC.
This is but a taste of the visual delights we enjoy each Spring
The area around the Tidal Basin draws the most attention. There is the Cherry Blossom Festival that draws crowds from all over the world. It is a spectacular sight, blooming cherry trees against a backdrop of our Nation’s monuments. It is but the tip of the floral iceberg. If you have the time and inclination, you can drive out Rock Creek Park and enjoy Forsythia, azaleas and tulips and jonquils and a smorgasboard of color. Weeping willows green up and dance in the breeze. Tiny flowers spring through soil awakening from and long winter’s nap. It is Springtime in Washington and we bloom from the shores of the Potomac to the foothills below Sugarloaf Mountain.
If you decide to make the journey, don’t be fooled by the narrow window offered on the festival blooming. Our area is blessed with a relatively long process. If you miss them on the Tidal Basin, you can see them in Olney. If you would like to find out more about moving to this area, you can contact me via this form.
This is your Nation’s Capitol, Washington DC and I promise you Nobody does Spring like Washington DC
